The observation ward

In an out of the way sort of way
where every day thinks it’s a Saturday
it’s the weekend and boys who’ll be boys
go out to play,

I stay in,
cook the breakfast
wash the dishes
and
do the ironing,

there is
no fun in being
responsible.

The milk’s off
gone sour,
but
we all are and do
sometimes.
